Ryback Wants to Bring Back World Heavyweight Title, Speculates About Nexus Reunion



In an interview with Wrestling INC, Ryback spoke about the possibility of the World Heavyweight Championship being brought back as a Smackdown exclusive title. Here are some highlights and an audio clip from the interview:

On bringing back the WHC: “We have our [red] live events and our [blue] live events, two sets of shows each and every week, and having the WWE Champion at one and having the World Heavyweight Champion on the other, that was something that when I came here, that was standard and I would like to [have] it return. It is something that I hope is discussed and that might be [something] I need to discuss with Vince [McMahon] personally. It would give the opportunity to carry that brand and bring more exposure to not only that WWE talent but the SmackDown brand as well.”

On a possible Nexus reunion: “No matter what our personal feelings are with each other, we have this bond from that moment. Unfortunately, some of the guys are no longer in the WWE, but never say never. You could always bring guys back to do something special again, and I know we have all talked about it from a talent standpoint, but it would have to be in the right moment, the right circumstance, and I believe the WWE Universe would love a Nexus reunion in the future.”

On his favorite time in WWE: “I remember the period when, like, Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero and Triple H and Kurt Angle, they were going out each and every week on SmackDown [and] having the best matches, not only on the show but on any of the shows in WWE, pay-per-view and [WWE] Monday Night RAW included. And I think that is what we need to get back to again to SmackDown, the quality match ups. And we have the roster to do it.”
